1. Cook often
It might sound as a daily and boring everyday chore but cooking food at home everyday has various advantages.

The prepared food in restaurants is generally loaded with oil and cream, recooked and reheated which destroys the core nutrition of the food. Cooking also works as a stress buster activity for many. Creating something healthy and pretty is certainly a reason to rejoice.
2. Sleep well
After a tiring day of almost 12-14 hours in action of work at office or home, traveling, reading, social networking, cooking, cleaning etc. you deserve a good sleep for. Although there is no defined hours of sleeping prescribed for a healthy living but minimum of 6 hours of sound sleep is required for the body to rest and cells and tissues to repair.
